The US Government Printing Office (GPO) keeps America informed
in print and online. The GPO is the Federal government's primary
centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, producing,
providing, and preserving published information in all its forms.
Part of the legislative branch, the GPO offers Congress, the
courts, and other government agencies centralized services to
enable them to easily produce printed documents according to
uniform Federal specifications. The GPO also offers the
publications for sale to the public and makes them available at no
cost through the Federal Depository Library Program. The GPO is run
like a business and requires payment from its government customers
for services rendered.
